State Champion Neumayer continues his successful run

State Champion Neumayer continues his successful run

Maximilian Neuchrist, on the other hand, is out on the ATP Challenger I at the STC in Salzburg’s Volksgarten.

It’s easier to play with confidence. Just on Sunday, Lukas Neumayer defended his success in national title fights at the official ÖTV Championship held in Oberbolendorf for one day as the first (and reigning) since the great Thomas Muster in 1984/85. Just a day later, the 20-year-old took his stellar form to the international level: the man from Salzburg was the first Austrian to reach the round of 16 at his ATP 125 clay-court rival, the Sparkasse Salzburg Open. Equipped with one of the competition’s three main wildcards, Newmayer (ATP 269) defeated India’s Sumit Nagal (ATP 225) in the first round late Monday afternoon after 1:58 hours of play 6:4, 7:6 (3). ). The next challenger is expected to be Argentine seventh seed Facundo Bagnes (ATP 126) on Wednesday, who defeated Maximilian Neuchrist (ATP 187) after a marathon of 3:04 hours 6:4, 6:7(4), 7:5.

Oberleitner with partial success, Kopp creates the habilitation

Neumayer made the match exciting against Nagal after he clearly dominated the first set after breaking a deficit of 2:3. Protégé Gunter Bresnik and Gerald Kamitz played to a 5:2 lead in the second round and had already missed a match point at this point, but still had to go in in a tiebreaker, which he finally won after an initial small break deficit. On the other hand, Neuchrist could not get a break against Bagnis, but he fought back with great effort against the South American who served 13 aces. A break earned after a fight in the eleventh game of the deciding set eventually led to its end. Last year, like Neumayer, he reached the quarter-finals here.

However, Neil Oberleitner was unable to finish his opening bout. The confrontation between wildcard-equipped Wiener (ATP 549) and Czech substitute Vit Kopriva (ATP 257) had to be stopped due to darkness when the score was 7: 6 (6), 0: 4. The Austrian contingent on the main field increased even more through qualification. 11th seed Sandro Cop (453) played his way through the second and final round of the preliminary round with an impressive 6:0, 6:2 against second-ranked Italian Lorenzo Giustino (ATP 258). In the main grid 32, Tyrolean was then assigned to eighth-placed compatriot Philippe Mesolek (ATP 141) as opponent. In any case, another ÖTV ace will reach the second round.
